Knitting is Hot, and He's Got the Burn Marks To Prove It!
Sorry! I can't help it! This was supposed to be posted yesterday, while I was still in a good mood. And that was when I came up with the title. Since then, I've started my girl time and had to sit up really late with Heather as she had some sort of coughing fit. So, I'm a little tired.
Anyways, let's move on. My friend Tyler came home Tuesday night! It's very exciting for me, every time a friend comes back from deployment, it makes me feel a little better. So, I used my knitting night to go out with him and some friends for a welcome home. And, I used that chance to prove to him that knitting was definitely a cool thing to do. When he first learned that I knit, of course he teased me. I got several compliments on Coachella that night, but mostly from Ty himself. You'll have to excuse the pics, I was dead tired and he was drunk. Hey, I told you it was his first night home. :) Oh, and does anyone else notice he was wearing a thermal shirt in August??
In other news, I now have one and a half Fancy Silk Socks. I put the sock on outside for pictures, wow was that a silly idea. It was so hot out there, and even putting on one sock for pictures was too much. Now I remember why I don't wear socks in the summer. I'm already starting to think about what socks I should knit next. lol Elizabeth keeps raving about the Charade socks, so I'm thinking those in the Fleece Artist I got a little bit ago.
Goddess is progressing really quickly. I can hardly put it down! There was a brief problem with the pattern, I think it was just a typo though. After doing a lot of crazy math, checking and re-checking...I'm pretty sure I know what I'm doing. The Stitch Diva
people have been contacted, they said they would get back to me by the end of the week, but we all know that I can't wait that long to knit! It's really coming along beautifully, as soon as I get the back done I can join it to the front. This might actually be finished before the summer is over. Well, that depends on where you are. Down here, summer (meaning the heat) lasts a lot than just August. It's still not even getting cold at night yet. Which means that the fall, or at least cooler weather is not around the corner. *sigh* Maybe that's a good thing? Maybe not. If it's still pretty warm when I finish Goddess I'll get a chance to wear t, but also I'll have to change what I planned to knit next. Which was going to be Tubey. Also gotta cast-on for some Christmas presents, probably a Montego Bay scarf, or maybe a mini-clapotis? Whatever, they are basically both scarves. lol I'm also thinking of adding fringe to that butterfly headwrap and calling it a thin scarf. According to my scale, I'm a little less than halfway through the ball.
Here is Eiffel, all finished. I'll probably take more pics, but for now this will do. It's a bit faded, which is kinda sad, but still pretty.
